Read what member families have said about their St. Thomas Aquinas Academy homeschooling experience.
This will be my daughter's third year with STAA. She is now a ninth grader, and we have been homeschooling her for nearly seven years. Before using STAA, we were on our own, selecting curriculum, scheduling, etc. That worked well at the time, but as she approached the middle school years, I felt as if I wanted guidance and
Thanks for your genuine interest in my children. I never imagined that you could become so in tune with them from just a paper and pencil evaluation. I am amazed by the amount of information I learned about my girls and can't tell you how much it is appreciated! We are super excited to get started.
I just have to tell you how much I have enjoyed this school year. This is our fifth year homeschooling and this is the FIRST YEAR I have not chucked half our curriculum during the Christmas break doldrums. I usually go through a big bout of self-doubt about my curriculum choices and worry we are not covering all we needed to. But this year I can
This is my second year with STAA, and the experience has been wonderful for our family. They helped me assess my children (ages 11 and 8), and helped me identify the reason for my son's reading problems so we could seek the right therapy for him. They recommended materials to teach with that were appropriate for my children, and
We have only just enrolled our 6th grade daughter with STAA for the 06-07 year. At this time, I cannot comment on the effectiveness of STAA methods nor advisors etc… So far, though, I am impressed with the assessment tests and the “quick conference” my advisor afforded me before I attended a home school expo, just
We are now going into our third year with STAA. We have a third grader, second grader and a kindergartner STAA has more then met our expectations as home schooling parents. The assessments give us great confidence that our children's education is going in the right direction and their academic weaknesses are being
Since I am writing, I will also sing more praises of the Greek Studies plan. [My daughter] moaned over the timed-essay and then did very well. So easy to implement with the choose one reflection topic from each subject and then get ready, get set, go! Apparently the school also gave suggestions for the process essay in "Format Writing." Thank you! For a mom of many this is real time saver.

We are starting our seventh year with STAA. First, the reason we use STAA is because of Divine Providence. Our family had been considering home education for quite a while when in the mail we received information regarding STAA, to this day we do not know how they got our name. We have been very pleased with their program and
Dear Friends, I would like to share with you why we keep going back to S.T.A.A. We have 11 living children and 3 in Jesus arms. I will use this program on all of the ones in our arms! S.T.A.A. Has been a True Blessing to our family! I get individual counseling on each child I enroll into S.T.A.A. Believe me each one of our children are different and I
I just wanted to write and let you know how grateful we are for your program. This is our second year with STAA. The program and curriculum is excellent, flexible and enjoyable with great support. Our homeschool atmosphere is now a relaxed one since there is no more wondering if there is a *better* curriculum out there...
